HOW DOES VOICE MAIL WORK

Is it free?

I have a answering machine @ home, so how does it work? I mean people call me & I get it, but it seems to auto switch from my answering machine to Verizon's. & back. It is like this;

Call 1 = my phone = answeing machine

Call 2 = Verizons vioce mail [same telephone #]

sometimes it swirches & I do not know if my answeing machine or phone should be connected.

Thanks;

Bob

ok, if you have your answering machine set to answer calls in  fewer rings than voicemail then it will work like this:

      voicemail will take a message from  anyone that calls you while your phone is being used, and your home answering machine will take a message from anyone that calls you when your phone is not being used, unless you answer the call before specified number of rings
